Prelude 2019 is a treasure trove of gluttony. On the nose, it expresses powerful and concentrated notes of fresh fruit: blackcurrant and black cherry. On the palate, it is still an explosion of fruit. Its tannins are supple and covering, leaving a long and remarkable persistence on aromas of cherry stone.


Sommelier’s advice

It is a wine to be enjoyed as an aperitif to accompany a variety of appetizers, or with a meal. It will go ideally with white meat dishes, slabs, fresh or mature cheeses.

A beautifully fresh wine to taste now or to keep up to 5 years.
